Looked like a great play from JR to me.

Thing is, nobody on this team can run the pick-n-roll effectively except for Felton right now. I miss that guy.

There are no words to describe this offense. How have Knicks gotten any points at all?

Knicks have struggled with Amare. Experts are right.

LOL what? Amar'e has played 7 minutes tonight. This anemic offense isn't on Amar'e. It's on the fact that 3 of 5 starters are injured. 3.5 if you count STAT himself.

Seriously? Can you back that up with sufficient evidence? Knicks are 2-2 since he came back.

You want to know what's not good for the Knicks? Their inabilities to stay out of foul trouble. I know everyone loves JR now, but don't just overlook the fact that he's 3-11 tonight with no signs of slowing down his shooting.

But you're right, jump on Amar'e, definitely his fault. Not the fact that Camby has shot the ball 8 times, and Chris Copeland was in our starting lineup due to injury. Nope, definitely Amar'e. Trade him right now for whatever you can get.

I would trade Amare for any player in the league. He easily has the worst contract in the NBA.

That's ridiculous.

He's not a distraction to the team, he's not playing well right now. That's to be expected.

"Experts are right..." the same "experts" who expected the Knicks to be a .500 team this season? Yeah.

Protip: The Knicks have looked like this (well, not THIS game specifically, this is just ridiculous) for a while now. Especially with Melo out. It's not on Amar'e, it's on everybody as a collective. People are switching with reckless abandon and nobody cares about ball movement anymore. Amar'e is a part of that, yeah. So is everyone else. It's upsetting.

edit- No tech for him hanging on the rim like that? If Carmelo did that he gets a lifetime ban from the league. **** the NBA.

Pretty pathetic again.

Not an easy place to play but Felton's injury is crushing the Knicks more than anything.

Knicks have some serious issues right now.

To be fair, we are very shorthanded. I hope this recent stretch of futility reminds people that Raymond Felton is actually an important contributor to the team.

I think some are expecting too much from him. He just isn't the same player.
Ever since he injured his back.

Really crappy loss when you consider they had a 4-point lead to start the 4th.

I'm kinda pissed. I mean, they havent played one friggin game all season with everyone healthy.

Unfortunately, this is one of the downsides of being by far the oldest team in the league. You can't call it unlucky - it's a natural, expected byproduct of the roster composition.

In fact, I would turn it around - if the Knicks are lucky enough to have the timing work out so that everyone is healthy for the playoffs, they will be very dangerous and one of the favorites in my mind.

It's time to stop ignoring how important Raymond Felton really is to this team.
